A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules in order to save information. The SSDs are still fairly new and more expensive than the classic hard disk drives (HDD), yet they're much faster, so they are quite often employed for Operating Systems and applications on both desktops and web servers. An SSD is recommended because it doesn't have spinning disks which restrict its speed and could cause overheating like it may happen with an HDD. Most companies employ SSDs for caching purposes, so all of the content which is accessed more often will be held on this kind of drives, while all other content will be kept on conventional HDDs. The reason to use such a configuration is to balance the price and performance of their hosting platform and to minimize the load on the HDDs caused by countless reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Hosting

Our modern cloud website hosting platform uses only SSD drives, so in case you purchase any of our hosting solutions, you'll take full advantage of the speed that these drives provide. We no longer use HDDs, so your files, databases and e-mails will all open from ultra fast SSDs. For even better performance, we use caching SSDs. Multiple drives are used by our system for every file which is accessed more often and the data on these drives is dynamically updated in order to ensure that all the traffic-intensive files load from them. That way, the load on the main drives is decreased, so we can guarantee exceptional performance for all kinds of sites no matter how many times they are accessed and avoid a situation where some Internet sites are affected by an excessive number of reading and writing processes generated by others. This setup also increases the lifespan of the main drives and reduces the risk of disk failure.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you buy one of our semi-dedicated server plans, your Internet sites will be stored on a cloud platform that employs solely SSD drives for the storage of files, databases and e-mail messages. Along with the revolutionary ZFS file system that we use, this setup provides lightning-fast loading speed for every web app hosted on our end. To guarantee that the Internet sites of one customer won't affect the ones of another, we also use numerous SSDs as cache - our system detects files that are accessed more frequently and copies them, so that they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is updated dynamically and therefore we can balance the load on all the drives, ensure their extended life-span, reduce the risk of disk failures and, of course, provide a super fast and reliable Internet hosting service.
